Bottom left is the small bay at the
Imperial Yacht Club (celebrating its centenery in 2006) and
Peninsula Canoe Club. The large island is Park Island, to its left is
Wildwood Island and the small one is Australia Island. The canals
of the Marina da Gama can be seen behind the islands. In the background
is the M5 freeway (Prince George Drive).
The view of Zandvlei in the foreground, Princessvlei to the north east
on the left, Rondevlei in the centre and Zeekoevlei the larger water
body off centre. On the right hand side is the Strandfontein Waste Water
Works. One can just make out the pans formed in a wagon wheel.
Strandfontein is the 5th most important birding area in South Africa,
for species and number counts.
This is a view
from the sea, looking north towards the back of Table Mountain and Table
Bay in the background.
This view of Zandvlei is looking south towards Simons Town in the distance.
